2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Jun-29-2015 by Shawn Childs
Cam missed the first game of the 2014 season after suffering a minor rib fracture in late August. Later in the year, Newton missed a second game after suffering a back injury in a car crash. He carried the ball only 14 times for 42 yards over the first four games as he was still nursing his injured rib. He picked up the pace in Week 6, rushing 17 times for 117 yards and one touchdown. On the year, Cam had only one 300-yard passing game and two games with at least three combined scores. Newton has averaged only 30.6 pass attempts per game over the past three years, which is about 12.5 percent below the league average. His rushing touchdown total has declined each season all the way down to five in 2014. He set the NFL world on fire as a rookie in 2011 when he threw for 4,051 yards, ran for 706 more and scored 35 total TDs. The growth of the Panthers' defense has turned Cam into more of a game manager. The key to his Fantasy value will always be what he does with his legs. He doesn't have a great offensive line and has boring talent at the RB position. He really needs Devin Funchess to develop quickly and possibly get consistent contributions from the No. 3 wideout. With a full season of health, Newton should have no trouble passing for 3,500-plus yards with at least 600 yards rushing. That combination translates to 4,700 passing yards in most Fantasy scoring systems. Cam has an excellent chance of notching at least 28 TDs. Despite finishing last season as Fantasy's No. 17 QB, he has an opportunity to land inside the top six because of his mobility. As the 11th QB selected and with an ADP of 78 early in the draft season, Newton looks like a nice value choice.

|4.11||DLF - I wanted to grab Brees here but Cam will do just fine. I think Carolina will sort out the passing game but his rushing yards and TDs help a lot obviously.|
